A powerful, personal meditation on the life and loves of African American poet Langston Hughes by pioneering queer British auteur Isaac Julien, followed by a Q&A with the director.
Informed by the photographic art of James Van der Zee and Robert Mapplethorpe, Julien’s film Looking For Langston explores the all-male homosexual underworld of black Harlem society from the 1920s to the 1950s and beyond.
After the screening, Julien will join Langston Hughes expert Shima Jalal Kamali, Eyes Wide Open Cinema’s programmer Jacob Engelberg, and the organisers in a discussion and Q&A. Presented in association with Eyes Wide Open Cinema, Brighton’s queer film strand.
